Dewy Look. With this look, the client will have a healthy looking glow to their skin, without looking too shiny. Always start with a moisturizer, to give it a good base for all-day wear. Use a tinted moisturizer next. Use a foundation brush to apply it smoothly all over the face, including the lips and the eyelids. Tap it into the skin with a sponge. Powder the lips and the eyelids. A light pink shimmer shadow can be used on the entire lid. Mascara will be applied only to the upper eyelash. Tap on some pink shiny lipstick and a light pink blush and you have a natural look with a bit of shine. This look works well for clients with dry to normal skin. Combination skin and oily skin does not work for this look. Nude Makeup. This is a very minimal look and the eyes need to really show, for it to work. Colors to use for this look include: light sand brown colors, orange or light-yellow-based browns and pink-based light browns. You want to make it look like the client is not wearing any makeup and the lips should be natural looking. Start with a primer if needed, to tone down any redness of the skin. Remember a green toner will take away the redness. Apply a light amount of liquid foundation and follow with the powder to the eyelids and lips, along with the entire face. Apply a matte finish eyeshadow, in a brown or medium brown, just along the lash line. Then blend it into the upper part of the eyelid. A white eyeliner and then some eye shadow, can be used on the bottom lash line, to create depth. Swipe the eyebrows with a small amount of brown eyeshadow and apply some deep brown mascara. Add a nude lipstick and a peach blush. This will work great for women with dark hair. Shimmer and Shine look. This is a popular look, because the shimmer can be found in foundations, blushes, lipsticks, pencils, shadows and mascara. The makeup for this, uses mica, a light reflecting crystal. When added, it highlights the features. Apply to areas of the face where light naturally reflects, like the cheekbones, chin, nose, lips, eyelids, forehead and on the body. Metallic colours work well with clients with darker skin tones. Shimmers work for just about anyone. Cooler shades look impressive with darker skin tones as well. Don’t go overboard and make everything shimmer and shine. Use matte foundations and then add a little shimmer to the eyeshadow, for example. You could then use mascara, blush and a shimmery lipstick or lip gloss. Bold colours. Bright colours are great for spring and summer. Mix and match and make it fun. Use a coral coloured lipstick, with a turquoise eyeshadow. Let the eyes and lips stand out, by keeping everything else neutral. If you find you are stuck on how to pull this look off, simply check a magazine.
